ABSTRACTThis paper presents a Genetic
Algorithm for the synthesis of Very Large Scale
Integration low power Digital Signal Processing
systems. The genetic algorithm operates on a high
level signal flow graph of the system, which contains
functional blocks such as adders, multipliers, etc.
Evaluation of each design involves consideration of
issues at different levels throughout the design
hierarchy, such as functionality and silicon level
